We just returned from a one week visit. This was our first experience with Secrets and there were some good and some not so good aspects of the hotel. Based on the prior reviews that we read prior to booking, I thought we would be blown away. Not! The hotel is nice enough with clean rooms and nice staff, but...

Secrets was amazing. My wife and I have never been to an all inclusive nor any resort that pampers their customers. Secrets does that. The staff will jump through hoops to make sure your vacation is excellent and problem free. The food and drinks are top notch. The scenery is gorgeous with warm water and soft sand at your feet....

Giving a shout out to sweet Kathy at Seaside, Johnathan and Rachel at Market Cafe, drink mixers Vinicio and Erick serving dirty monkeys and Cucarachas and Jundry(?) of the entertainment crew.

The staff are all very friendly and always working to accommodate your requests. The rooms are nice and many have spectacular views of the bay (panoramic or water front view). We had a garden...

I have been to this resort 3 times since it opened and it gets better every time I'm there. I absolutely love the friendliness of the staff and for an all-inclusive the food is excellent! If you haven't been you need to check it out.

So probably one of the closest hotels to the Liberia Airport which was super convenient for our last nights. The grounds were fabulous and I loved walking around them. We never took a cart, but if you have bad knees might be inevitable. Food was best we had in Costa Rica. But I was a little upset we didn't get...
